I mention paying attention to the podcaster’s guidelines (if they have any) in a prior article. The tip bears repeating because you don’t want to through off the pocaster’s schedule or come off as if you didn’t read the guidelines.
It’s easy to skim through the guidelines and think you’ll remember everything when the time comes. It can’t hurt to print the guidelines out or store the information digitally somewhere so you can find it again when you need it.
You don’t want to scramble 10 minutes before the interview and realize that you won’t be set up properly. It couldn’t hurt to read even more tips to properly prepare for an interview.
